State of New Jersey Historical Landmark
National Register of Historic Places History Prior to conversion, this tavern and inn, constructed in 1726, was frequented by many of our nation's notables and not so famous citizens of the Colonies and England. The facility saw continuous use until the late 1960's when the tavern and inn ceased operating. Vacant until renovation started in 1987, the inn quickly fell Into a state of disrepair. The Inn and its surrounding property were purchased in 1985 and plans were set for conversion of the inn to dental offices and the rear parcel to have a building constructed on it to hold office on the ground floor and residential on the top floor. The exterior was restored to its original condition and the interior was developed to save as much as the structure as possible and yet accommodate all the requirements of a dental practice.

Our Design Philosophy

“The art of dancing stands at the source of all arts that express themselves first in the human person.  The art of building, or architecture, is the beginning of all the arts that lie outside the person; and in the end they all unite.” - Havelock Ellis
Building facilities unique to the owner’s special needs requires creative effort to balance function, aesthetics, durability and affordability in operation.  We help clients move through these challenges and manifest their dreams and desires in tangible form.
